This page is under constant review - Additional links will be added from time to time.
 If you know of a suitable link that is not here or you come across any dead links on this page, 
please e-mail the webmaster with details

This first part of this page contains links to other NON COMMERCIAL  Related Poetry Sites
unless indicated, they are NOT affiliated with the WA Bush Poets & Yarn Spinners Assn

The second  part has links to other Vintage Australian Music & Art,  Australian Travel, Being Australian  .  
While some of these are commercial sites,  the WABP & YS has no commercial affiliation with them, 
other than mutually sharing links and an interest in Australian culture,  Artistic history and discovering this great country of ours. 

Please let me know about any bad links 

The following icons are  links to organisations, and instrumentalities who, in the past,  have supported the WA Bush Poets  by providing grants and sponsorship or free publicity.  Their support is greatly appreciated 


Beware Some Poetry Sites

Be aware that some poetry sites (not listed here), asking for submissions to a competition are not what they first appear to be.  After you have sent in your poem, you are sent a glowing report on its greatness.  You are then told that you poem has been considered suitable for publishing.  By this time your head is in the clouds. Then you are asked to buy the publication or to have your poem printed and mounted.  You buy the publication (at an inflated price) only to discover that your masterpiece is crammed in as one of 5000 others all printed on less than high quality paper.
